Yikes!, I remember that night all too well. My friend Carl and I were sitting behind the stage and had a good view of all the guests as the came on stage. He asked who "those guys" were and I replied I think I know - but I hope I'm Wrong. He later said "they must be Bobby's friends." Mick Taylor and Suzanne Vega were cool that night, though.

What? Daryl "The Mullet" Hall and John "No, I'm Not Cheech" Oates? What's not to love?

I feel I must defend Daryl Hall a little. Aside from having what was as good a pop voice during his time as anyone he actually hung out with some pretty accomplished musicians when he was not singing about man eaters.

He had a solo album in the late 70s that was produced by Robert Fripp and Fripp appears on this album. Moreover this album (Sacred Songs), was supposed to be part of a trilogy of albums produced by Fripp. The other albums that were part of this "trilogy" were Peter Gabriel's second album and Fripp's solo album "Exposure." Hall sings a song on this latter album called "You Burn Me Up I'm A Cigarette" which was no top 40 hit. Part of the reason the trilogy didn't work out was that the record company would not release Hall's album. Fripp said in an interview "It terrified the record company" The company said it was "strange" and Hall's manager was also scared by it.

"I can't believe I am doing this but...."


I can.



Seriously though, yeah they might not have been to everyones' tastes, but they did have talent. And has been pointed out, professing a like for them (either actual or feigned) was at one time a pre-requisite for getting any.

Oh yeah, how many time was this line heard at Lehigh University in 1985?

"You have that new Live at the Apollo Album!! I loved Hall and Oates with those motown guys at Live Aid, could we go back to your dorm room and give it a listen?"

It's funny. A few years ago I was in new england for NYE. I really don't do bars for NYE anymore so I thought I might stay in. Then I saw hall and oates playing at this CT casino. I put the call out to see who wanted to go. Half laughed at me, the other half were up for it. Tickets turned out to be pricey butI thought it might be fun.

And this never fail line:

"I'll show you my Discwasher if you show me yours"

Or, even better:

"Want to borrow my TDK Head Demagnitizer?"

Almost like a Telefunken U47 RotoPlooker

Marsalis for me.

Agree with Elbow on hall and Oates. I actually like them.

Also, I thought the Neville's were a nice guest too

Hey Lobster - are you familiar with the 2-27-90 show with Beauseleil? Better than the neville's imo

I was not until you mentioned it. The reviews look great and the setlist is solid. I think this is my homework for the week.

Another confession. Back in the day H&A had the "blue eyed soul" thing down and the girlfriends loved it. In fact had to escort one of my CPA's (current pelvic asssociate) to one of their shows. No Dead show for sure, but the band had talent.

If you liked soul music during that era, it was either H&A or feeling like the Animal House boys at a Otis Day & The Knights show.

Hey, H&A are another strong Todd Rundgren connection...

I know, I'm beating a dead horse here, but H&A covered some TR, and Todd produced a couple of their albums. Abandoned Luncheonette, some of their best work (imho)
